“Pad Thai”
Review of Tadaima

Reviewed June 12, 2013

I have only been there once, I was really craving Pad Thai and although I wasn't expecting the exact same thing.. I was expecting something similar with mexican flavors.

Not what I received at all. They really tried as to what ingredients they used but the sauce, OMG! I was expecting a nice light peanuty sauce and what I actually got was ketchup. Noodles, peanuts, green onion, shrimp, bean sprouts, tofu AND ketchup.

The only reason I gave them a POOR rating was because it did have quite a few more shrimp than expected. Other than that, terrible.

Plus, highly overpriced.

I will never spend another peso at this place.

The food was bad. The place was dead on Friday night and there is an obvious reason for that. Waste of money. I would highly recommend to stay away from this place.

The standard was way below normal for an ethnic restaurant outside the home country.
I would not recommend this place for anything other than sushi which has some unique varieties (although the tastes of rich marlin, salmon, avocado and cream cheese were too strong).

The basic dishes of japanese cooking however, were very, very expensive for what I received, and the young server was unfriendly even to guests trying to be friendly with him (I assumed that he hated his life).

The chef has never tasted Ramen, Gyoza, Cha-han or any other basic japanese dish in his or her life. Its impossible because the flavors were nothing similar, and the ingredients for those dishes and bases are able to be reproduced in Ensenada.
But although authentic japanese ingredients are available here, they obviously aren't being put to use in this restaurant.

I would not recommend this to anyone who loves japanese food or is trying japanese food for the first time.
